St. Louis, Nov.' 20.—The train on the Mobile and Ohio railroad which left the Union station at 8:35 Tuesday evening carried nearly adozen families all bound for Alabama, where they intend to establish a community which is to be conducted strictly upon the single tax idea. All are members of Fairhope Industrial association, which was organized and incorporated atDes Molnes last February for the purpose of illustrating, if possible, the advantages to be derived from a single tax government. The community is to be started in Baldwin county, Alabama. Among the members who passed through the city on their way to Alabama were: E. B. Gaston and family, Des Moines, John Hiinnel and wife, Minneapolis; Mrs. Dr. Lamon, Cincinnati; and George Beck, Johnson, Neb. Gilbert Anderson, who resides at 2619 Pine street in this city, and who is also a firm believer in the single tax theories, accompanied the party. He will stay until thecommunity is put in working order, when he intends to return and move his family. A number of other families met the main party at their destination today which is the day set for the formal opening of the community. Fifty-one familes are said to'be at present member's'of the 1 association and representing seventeen states, extending as far west as California and east to Pennsylvania. The officers of the association are: L. B. Clement, Des Molnes, president; E, B. Gaston, Dea Moines, secretary; and Alf Wooster, Oskaloosa, treasurer.

A pricon interior has a strange, morbid fascination for tho average freeman. There is such a general atmosphere of weird unreality about it all, accentuated by tho sternest realities of an iron discipline. From the burly, hnfd faced guard, who leans upon his shining Winchester in tho sentry bos on the walls, to the pale consumptive murderer, whoso hacking cough is the only sound that breaks tho stillness of tho prison hospital, everybody and thing ia strangely different from the outer world. Hundreds of silent, striped suited convicts bending over their workbenches, walking about the yard with arms folded or marching in lockstep with eyes averted, surround the visitor on every side. There is a peculiar odor born both by the .prison apartments and by the prisoii inmate's which is as marked and distinctive as the odor of the hospital or of the steerage. It tells of a life of torpidity i barren of sunshine and of change. It tells of utensils and cells made stale and foul with constant usage in spito of we lied about eridless scrubbing and rinsing. The His girl went prison is one great hive of yellow, close cropped, hangdog looking humanity, speaking to their keepers or to their companion laborers atraro intervals and in subdued tones, but possessed of some secret freemasonry and means of communication with one another and with the outside world that baffles tho most rigid discipline and searching iuquisi' tion. The thing that strikes the visitor from the -outer world most is the apparent weakness of the governing power. A hundred convicts armed with knives two feet long and sharp as razors are catting out great piles of clothing in a room guarded by half a dozen apparently unarmed keepers. Another company of surly malefactors are plying the hammer and chisel in a stone yard, mingling with a handful of guards whose skulls could be split in five seconds after the giving of a preconcerted signal. It is the vast but unseen elumbenny power of the state that holds'toens, tho knowledge of the keen sighted, iron nerved marksmen on the outer walls. -whose repeating • rifle* carry seventeen lives apiece, and the hopelessness a world where every man's hand would bo tgainst thorn, and even' temporary success could only end in deat'u or lengthened punishment. Principal Keeper Connaughtoa. ofBiti;; Sing prison, lisa t?peut seventeen years of his life among convicts and never carried a pistol. Dozens of times he has been assuniwd by desperate convicts, but hisv brawny arm and heavy stick havo carried him through safely. • "Wha$ was the narrowest escape you ever had?" a wondering visitor asked him once. '_'When a fellow jumped on me with a knife as I was sitting in my office," said the keeper. "What did you do?" "Sent him to tho hospital when I finished," was the laconic but expressive answer. "They have no heart," continued this steely eyed convict driver with the square, mitsoive jaw. "In the days when wo worked them in the quarries 1 havo seen three hundred of them bi-alj away in a body and go runnicg down through the yard to the railway track. Only two guards with Winchesters stood between this rushing mob and freedom. Tho first three shots dropped the first three convicts, and the rest turned and ran for their lives back to quarters." Among the curiosities of every prison are tho famous convicts, notorious miu- iei-eiii, fallen bank presidents, clever swindlers and romantic desperadoes of every type. The oldest prisoner is also trotted out for inspection by the specially favored; some old, white haired, pale faced man, who for twoscore years perhaps has not looked beyond the prison walls, stands blinking before the visitors. When he left the world the civil war was unfought, France was an empire, Germany a mass of disorganized states. Outside the shining river still draws its water from the purple hill, and busy life flows on, but all is dead to him. As the visitor stands in the little green courtyard at sundown and sees company after company of sickly looking prisoners issuo from shops and storerooms and wind around the walks like so many huge' centipeds, with the undulations of the lockstep, each man with a slop pail on his arm and a loaf of bre,ad in his hand; as he views them disappearing into the cryptJiko dining room, whose floor IB wet with the slops from a thousand tin coffee cups, or watches them filing into the tier after tier of galleries that lead to their narrow, stuffy little cells where tho night is ^passed under look and keyj as he comes through'the low arched entrance on his way to freedom and. catches a OfUvnV^Oa f\f 4-Vkrt <r..nJJ.J«_ >_ 1 »Q circle,; It to printed »t pape?rinpe of 'Wales, 3c», »»ft'$B |B8^e4 only-once ^ year, .T*ro taw el dynamite , r T - ------ — *»»*^s WMIVVJ.J.OQ glimpse of the waiting: room, where prisoner stands with a look of agony in his dull face beside the sob ehi^en form Of a visiting Bister or mother; as he hears the great iron gate shut with a harsh, jangling sow^ behind him ana SjowJy shftke ; a off the hgrxov and' disr' gpc? that Pte0p,fte very »tm'ospher§ of" th<* pjMj fee realicetfui} fce.
